Masks Are No Longer Mandatory at Universal

Universal Orlando Resort is taking their next step on the path to getting back to normal. As of Saturday, May 29th, 2021, face coverings are no longer mandatory indoors and on attractions for vaccinated guests. This comes just one week after Universal changed their previous face covering policy and made masks optional outdoors, but still mandatory indoors including shops, restaurants and hotel public areas, and at all attractions from the moment the queue begins until the exit of the experience.

Universal Orlando Resort is not requiring a proof of vaccination. Universal’s Team Members will still be wearing face coverings while onstage. Universal also continues to recommend washing your hands often for at least 20 seconds and practice social distancing by keeping at least 3 feet between your travel party and others and adhere to floor markings when present.

Universal Orlando’s website still says attendance is being limited at the theme parks, and limited capacity is the final hurdle in getting back to normal. Universal has made great progress in returning to normal and essentially has gotten back to it in one year. The parks closed due to COVID-19 on March 16, 2021 and reopened for previews starting June 1, 2021.
